Default Screen resolution? - 12-09-2008, 03:58 PM

So I put Windows XP Pro SP3 on my Mini and got the drivers off Dell's page and all is well... except when I go under Display Properties I have only 1 or 2 resolutions and the highest was 800x600. I chose it, and the screen looks correct (you can tell when an LCD isn't running its native resolution) and the aspect ratio looks right... but its a widescreen so 800x600 doesn't make sense... what gives?

Could you post a screenshot (maybe of display properties as well as screen) so we could check the resolution?

I just made myself an nLite cd with XP pro sp3 and included all the latest drivers from Dell. It adjusted the display to what it should be without me doing anything...did you install the Dell driver or are you using a driver included in the xp install?
